They are many, but we are legion

They are many, and they cause pain and grief. But we can be legion. That's why I'm publishing the images below, and encourage you to do the same, no matter what you think of them, no matter how offensive you think they are. To care about visual communication, we need to care for freedom of expression first. If liberty means anything at all it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. Ideas aren't respectable. People are. Bravo, imam, for supporting this cornerstone of open societies. And shame on you, publications like BBC news, who publish the video of the gunmen but censor the cartoons You offend us.
